    I have an odd desktop problem... I was running photoshop on my XP laptop, and I somehow crashed it (xp and photoshop 6.01 seem to have issues, but thats another thread) When I rebooted, my desktop was seriously different. Theres a bar down the left side of the screen, like the left side menu that appears with the control panel. The other 4/5 of the screen still contains my wallpaper. I can't figure out how to get rid of this bar/menu/folder thingy!?!? Most all of my desktop icons are also gone. the programs all seem to be intact, but their shortcuts strangley gone. And last, my taskbar is a messed up, the "battery power remaining" icon is gone, as well as the volume control "speaker" icon, and the "hide/reveal" icon/function is gone. any know whats going on. Is this some kind of alternate display setting that I can undo or is something seriously screwed here?

    any help would be gtreatly appreciated!
